Accessed by more than 100 users, the SCCDPD's in–house developed FileMaker Pro solution consists of 50 databases running atop multiple MAC OS and Windows–based personal computers networked via AppleTalk and TCP/IP. The databases average between and 5 and 30 layouts and 15,000 records, with the most housing more than 430,000 records.
DeMattei has many uses for his FileMaker Pro solution including land use application tracking, expiration tracking, time tracking, fee tracking, building permit sign–off approval, and a myriad of others.
What DeMattei most appreciates about FileMaker is that it is flexible, easy to use and allows him to make changes to a database in minutes 'without having to incur expensive consultant fees,' he adds.
FileMaker Pro is the heart of a mission critical workgroup solution we use to keep the department running smoothly.
